Starcraft II is going Free-To-Play on November 14th

At Blizzcon 2017, Blizzard has announced that Starcraft II will become free to play, making the game's Wings of Liberty Campaign, VS/Competitive Mode and Co-Op modes available to everyone.  

In Co-op, Starcraft II fans can play together using all of the game's commanders, with Kerrigan, Raynor and Artanis being completely free to play and all other commanders being available to for free up to level 5. The game's Heart of the Swarm, Legacy of the Void and Covert Ops campaigns will all remain as paid add-ons for Starcraft II.    

This presents newcomers to the RTS genre a great chance to get started, offering a free campaign to learn the mechanics of the game as well as a free co-op mode to play with friends, a mode that lacks the stress that online RTS games can provide to newcomers to the genre. Players now have plenty of opportunities to practice before playing the game competitively, with this mode also being free to everyone. 

 

This mode is designed to bring more people into Starcraft, offering users a lot of great content free of charge, be it the chance to play online co-op or just the simple opportunity to play StarCraft II's single-player campaigns. Fans of online RTS play can also be happy to see newcomers to the scene and newcomers will be happy to play one of today's best RTS experiences free of charge. 

Starcraft II will become free to play on November 14th on Blizzard's Battle.net app.
